About Chocolate Torrone
Chocolate Torrone is a classic Italian Christmas candy that’s made from chocolate, Nutella, and roasted hazelnuts.
For the sake of clarity, though, this isn’t a REAL torrone (i.e.: nougat), you won’t find any honey or egg whites in it, but a CRAZY amount of chocolate and hazelnuts. Why the name then? “Because it looks like one” is the simplest answer. Just like the famous Italian chocolate confection, this torrone is a gigantic candy bar with a bunch of nuts in it!
Making this Chocolate Hazelnut Torrone isn’t difficult. You need just a handful of ingredients and it’s really all about melting chocolate, brushing it, and pouring it. Once it has hardened, you just have to pop it out of its mold and even if it doesn’t turn out perfect or shiny, you can cover it in sprinkles and it will still look pretty! Be prepared to taste one of the most delicious chocolatey desserts you’ve ever tasted.
